Last night, a friend told me about a certain administrator who called one of his students an idiot. The student was hurt and embarrassed and did not ever want to have anything to do with that administrator again. The child has learning problems, and has very low self esteem. The child and the parents are afraid to complain to anyone who could possibly help. This child, who was starting to turn herself around, has now suffered a major set back.
Sticks and stones may break bones, but names can and do hurt.
This administrator should not be around children. I am sure it is not the first time a comment like this was made and it won't be the last. A teacher would immediately be removed for making this comment yet the admin seems to have immunity. No one should be allowed to name call anyone. Everyone needs to be held accountable to the same standards.
